China's bee-wearing contest

A"bee-attracting" competition was held in China's Hunan province. Lu Kongjiang (above) and Wang Dalin were fearless enough to join the contest.

They wore only a pair of shorts with a queen bee to attract the swarms. Both competitors stood on a weighing scale so the judges could determine who attracted more bees.

The Guinness Book of Records has a category for "most pounds of bees worn on the body," reportedly held by US animal trainer Mark Biancaniello who attracted 39.5 kilos (87lb) of bees onto his body.

Mr Wang (above) won the competition after he attracted 26 kg (57lb) of bees onto his body in 60 minutes. His opponent was engulfed by 22.9 kg (50lb), local media reported. The winner did not, however, beat the Guinness World Record.
